Villa Escudero wasn't really as expected. First of all it's not really a waterfall, but a dam. The lunch buffet was ok. But the pool area is very nice and we also did rafting which was fun!

I've been there with my school mate on 2011. It's a quite and natural place. It's worth to visit if you haven't been there.

What are the hours of operation? I would probably arrive at 1PM on feb 14th and I really wanted to do the kayaking and waterfall/lunch tour. Would I still have time if I arrive at 1pm?

You will be missing the major part of the lunch hour, though. It would be advisable to be there around 9a.
Hi! Did you do on your own or did you do a tour? About how much did you spend at the restaurant?

We went there with a private car. Then you have to pay 1250php which includes a carabao ride, balsa/ raft ride, visit to museum and a buffet in the waterfalls.
